Featured Artist: Matisse & Sadko
Music is in their Blood - Russia’s finest Export - Brothers, Musicians, DJs - Matisse & Sadko.
Outstanding representatives of electronic club music, this DJ/production duo has been steadily winning over fans outside of Russia since 2010. Already touted as “ones to watch” by some of the dance music world’s leading tastemakers and DJs, Matisse & Sadko’s fans include Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello (who tapped Matisse & Sadko for his label Size Records’ 100th release, “SLVR,” which topped Beatport’s main chart in the summer of 2013 and also for recent “Persia” club bomb) and Axwell. With high profile releases on labels such as Size Records, Armada Music, Spinnin’ Records and more, M&S’ production prowess has made the duo rising stars from Russia’s EDM world. Their singles "Hi Scandinavia," "Svenska," and "Amulet" have been supported by the best DJs & producers in the business and included in their major festival sets & radio shows. Their collaboration with popular Russian project Swanky Tunes & Hard Rock Sofa, “Chemistry,” was praised by major house & progressive artists such as Avicii, Swedish House Mafia, Dirty South, Tiesto, and Armin Van Buuren. And their beloved single with Arty — "TRIO” was released on Axwell’s Axtone Records label subsequently receiving massive support by Pete Tong, who made it an "Essential Selection" on his BBC Radio 1 show. The mass effect that the collaborations with the Dutch golden kid of EDM Martin Garrix “Dragon” & “Break Through The Silence” caused worldwide can be only described as a total festival takeover and global dance anthems of the year, not to mention that both tracks reached #1 in Beatport’s main chart in less than a week! And it seems that Matisse & Sadko brothers are just unstoppable and don’t rest at all, because they keep on dropping club bombs one after another: “TENGU” vs. Vigel was on top of attention in August-September, and only a lazy one hasn’t supported or heard October’s dirty dancefloor killer “Lock’N’Load” — both are out on Spinnin’ Records divisions.
But it isn’t just Martin Garrix, Sander Van Doorn, Swedish House Mafia, Armin van Buuren, Tiesto, Arty, Zedd and Hardwell playing Matisse & Sadko’s music in their sets, they have also earned their place amongst them as live performers as well. Matisse & Sadko are regular billed artists at highly respected touring event Sensation, the world’s leading dance party; they have been the only Russian artists whose talent was noted specifically by ID&T and by the event creator himself — Duncan Stutterheim.
Their performance is not a simple DJ set, but a true live experience. You can see that in the reaction from fans that know them, and even new crowds that are experiencing Matisse & Sadko for the first time. Whether on tour in America or at the Global Gathering and other festivals, Matisse & Sadko’s stage presence is undeniable.
